I fully modded out a original xbox in '03 reading guides off this site. Now I'm thinking of getting a 360 to have some action at some new games and it seems information is very conflicting or hard to find. On the original xbox it was look at the big chart of mod chips and bioses, pick what worked for you. Determine your version (1.1-1.6) and follow the install directions. then switch hdds and start loading dashes, etc.
Is the information up to date that it is impossible to use any method (chip,soft mod, etc.) on a XBOX Slim (4gb or 250gb version) to run third party (unsigned) software??
I have read some stuff about using different firmware to be able to play back ups on the dvd drive. I have read different stuff some saying that that it isn't possible on the slim drives and some saying it is. As far as Live support it also sounds like you can NOT play legit (non back up) games with the modded firmware.
If nothing is possible on a Slim xbox(which is all the local best buy had) which should I try and get and from where?
